In this work Istanbul's existing and proposed water resources are investigated. The service territory includes approximately 10,000,000 people. Due to ongoing emigration, it is difficult to make precise predictions. Water demand is currently 33.3 m(3)/s. If the Istanbul's population increases with 2.4% growth rate per year,the population would be 23 millions by the year 2020.
